I'm just looking a the beginning of episode one of The Prisoner. I tuned into ITV more from curiosity than anything, because i couldn't figure why they would want to remake that fabulous Sixites series which has become a bit of a cult. However, it appears to be Amerrican so that might explain it. Could someone please let me know if I'm wasting my time looking at this thing?

The reason behind all remakes is a lack of imagination.There have been good remakes,3.10 To Yuma springs to mind,but its still lazy.

I watched this thing. It started off OK but I suspect it may go the way of a lot of TV lately. It will either die after a single series or be mildly succesful and run ad-infinitum (Lost anyone?).

The new Prisoner series? It has its charms,, but lacks something. Guess I just like the original series better...
